Red Deer students win gold at Skills Alberta

Virtual competition held

Two Red Deer high school students captured gold medals during the recent Skills Alberta competition.

Grade 10 student Jack Lerouge, from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School, beat out 15 competitors in the culinary arts division.

He prepared ginger-lime roasted chicken with Thai red curry vegetables and black sesame rice cakes in front of a panel of judges, including professional chefs.

“Because the competition was virtual, and a lot of the judging was based on presentation, I decided to make a dish that had lots of colours and contrasts,” Lerouge said in a statement.

Grade 12 student Bryce Corrin, from Hunting Hills High School, came in first in the IT office software applications division.

Competitors were asked to use the full range of Microsoft Office applications to create promotional materials for a fictitious drive-in theatre.

“For over a year, I worked at the regular movie theatre here in Red Deer, so overall, I had a really well-rounded idea about what would appeal to the average customer on the poster,” Corrin said in a statement.

Thanks to Skills Alberta’s partner RBC, the Red Deer winners were welcomed into the Gold Medal Club by 2018 Olympic gold medallist Justin Kripps, who works with RBC.
